    meh... no previously unseen footage. No new audio mix of the rehearsals. The only new staff can be in coffee book. Beautiful and pointless. Next please.

    10 years and they couldn't even include any unseen footage or unheard audio.

    Why am I not surprised?

    Yes, this is a VERY expensive set.

    We already have the the 3D BluRay:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Michael-J...sAAOSw9ClcgY9E

    We already have the lenticular 'ticket':

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Michael-J...IAAOSwURhdkb0z

    We already have the This Is It album on vinyl:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Michael-J...QAAOSww3tY6CC1

    No doubt we've already seen most of the photos in the book.

    So what you're really paying for here is blue vinyl and a fancy box that lights up and could be made by anybody with some basic electronics knowledge for less than a tenner.

    Surely it couldn't be too hard to add SOMETHING extra to the film to make it worthwhile. They haven't even bothered to change the cover art to match the box style - a job that would take minutes - so they're probably just using standard stock they already have in a warehouse somewhere. The same with those lenticular tickets - they probably had them in storage for the past 10 years. Sure, they gotta print blue vinyl but I'd hazard a guess that the album sound quality itself has not been improved in any way.





    I should add that I have mentioned on here many times that was eagerly awaiting a 10th anniversary edition and that I would buy it if it had content that I didn't already have. But this is just too expensive for too little benefit for me to bother. Of course, others will (and that's fine) but it's not for me.

    I hope MJ Estate has some plans to release something more affordable that I would want to buy, but I can't see how they could do that now.

    My thoughts exactly. This is an horrific price for the set.

    I have mixed feelings for this. i remember someone on the form early this year talking about how it's been 10 years since this is it was release and will they do something for it's 10 year anniversary. We'll i guess that person got their wish.

    how do i feel about this?

    in my head it like it's finally something new. we thought we wasn't gonna get nothing this year. but at the sametime i'm like we don't need half this stuff and why this is it? why do we want something have do with Michael passing away weeks before this concert? it's makes no sense and waste of time and money.

    we have all of this. the only thing that would worth is the book that's probably has pictures we already have and the build in light up box that's moves to the beat of music. everything else here is waste of time and money.

    I see there's also new wear on the shop site. which great because we do need some more but couldn't they use a different image instead of just one?

    my opinion on this is it waste of time and money. would i buy? Mmmm……. not really. we already have all this stuff.

    if we could buy each item by themselves then yes. i would buy the box and the book. yeah i know it's not much. but it would still be a part of an collection.

    give this product right now 3 in half stars.

    you know there's gonna be some fans who's gonna buy it so i'll be looking out for the unboxing videos later this year and next.

    BAD 25 and Thriller 25 were so much better. this right here is only money grabbing. it's kind of like the scream 2017 album expect it has more stuff with it.

    540 Euro. Totally insane. As a collector, I want to have these blue vinyls. damn. but the price is absolutely not acceptable.

    Better these idiot release a Dangerous 25, BOTD 20, or all the Tours on Blu-ray.

    They should release the blue Vinyls in a Set. Like the original TII Vinyls 10 Years ago.

    This sure is notable, the first official release post-LN?

    On account of them expecting UK customers to pay approximately £100 more for it versus the US, it's a hard pass. They appear to have learned nothing from the picture disc box set release where they initially expected the same thing before reducing the price and refunding everyone in the UK the difference.

    If there was something really special in this, I may have purchased, but 3D blu-ray is about as special as it gets and I already have it, plus they are shafting the UK customers on the price.

    This is absolutely not acceptable for a price. This set is an album, a blu ray, a book and a ticket. 180 euro tops.
